“As to all those who believe he should be banned for life….Really?“

Yes.

”You would like to be judged by your worst action? Not me.”

“t's a travesty to hang him publicly given the lack of attention paid to the woeful ethical state of high-level bridge”

so, high-level bridge domain is rotten, right ?
and because of that, we should congratulate a cheater instead of banning him ?

“ I would like to see detailed comments from Michael R., Steve W .,Jason F.”

Indeed, as well as from Mike P. himself, as he is still a member of BW, maybe he could explain if the motivations were the same as the german doctor ones.

euh … is this really the same guy having written that : http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/cheating-in-bali/?cj=108630#c108630 ?

if so, there could be a chance to see France or Poland world champions in Bali ?

and probation, really ? what about life suspension and go find another game to cheat at ?

Edited:
And what about his BW account ? still prefer having someone like Dean as a member of this community instead of a cheater..

“Your point? or is it just a really bad attempt at sarcasm ? ”

Hopefully, it was a really good sarcasm, and the point was to avoid violating BW guidelines with an inappropriate tone and answer ?

@David

OK but then what would you bid with quite the same hands having and values inverted, e.g.,

AQxx
x
AQJxx
xxx

or

KQJ
xx
AQxxx
xxx

how do you ask if partner stops s ?

I am not a 2/1 specialist but if 3 is always a 3-card raise, what would you bid over 3 with:

xxx
x
AQJxx
AQxx

or

Jx
xx
AQxxx
KQJx

especially at matchpoints scoring ?

does 3 promise extras causing the responder to bypass 3NT ?

Abstain because I don't know what are the follow-up if responder wants to play 3NT without a stopper.
Within my partnership 3 shows either a fit or a lack of stopper. Opener should then bid 3NT if he has a stopper, further bidding by responder would guarantee the fit.

I was just wondering what the 1 bidders would do over a 2NT (18-19 balanced) rebid of the opener…

2 over 1NT would be non-forcing, sorry I should have precised that in the OP

Double 2 extends the ping pong to all 1x 1y 1z auction, ping pong is restricted to z=NT.
1 - 1 - 1 - 2, is a relay to 2 in double 2 and it is not related to 2 ping-pong.
